Happy Boxing Day! and Mystery Quilt progress

Bonnie Hunter went easy on us this week - half square triangles!  This week's Monday Mystery Link Up is here.  It's so cool to see how everyone is progressing.

In dark purple and neutral (in my case, navy blue).  

The suggested color for neutrals in this quilt are light neutrals - whites, ivories, creams, beiges, (anything lighter than a brown paper bag is the rule of thumb).  A lot of quilters are following that, but a few have wandered off doing our own thing.  Nothing wrong with either decision!  Just a little, teeny, tiny, itty-bitty, eensy bit of anxiousness as to how it's going to look. Going for VIBRANT here!

On a recent Quilt Cam, Bonnie read my email & saw my colors & was excited about my color choices, so that's a comfort.  Either way, I wouldn't change my mind - need to follow my quilting muse where ever she leads.  Hoping my muse is ready for 2017 - I have a lot of ideas swirling around that need decisions.


  1. I'm still loving your dark-yet-glowing colours! I think navy "neutral" was an inspired choice.

  2. Your colours are turning this quilt on its head. Can't wait to see your bright greens and yellows added to the mix.
